overriding nginx try_files setting

Question

And the next issue on my way to nginx'iness.

I want to run Seafile on one vhost. I added all the settings Seafile told me to in their manual (https://manual.seafile.com/deploy/deploy_with_nginx.html).

Didn't work at first (got 404'ed after the initial redirect), but once I commented out either the "try_files" in "location /" or in "location @php" it started working.
It seems that the =404 which is default in "location @php" is the issue.

Even after reading through the source code's "mergeVhostCustom" magic I couldn't find a way to override the default try_files statement without patching my Froxlor installation...

Any hints?

Most of WordPress static caching plugins require try_files modification on Nginx, this is a very much needed feature.

Please how are current FROXLOR users able to Host websites like Wordpress and other websites since this issue is yet to be resolved.

Please I really need your response as most of my websites are either Pure PHP or WordPress and I use NGINX as web server and PHP-FPM on a CentOS 7 machine

My current quick-and-very-dirty workaround looks like this:

froxlor/scripts/jobs/cron_tasks.inc.http.30.nginx.php

if ($domain['phpenabled_customer'] == 1 && $domain['phpenabled_vhost'] == '1') {
    $webroot_text .= "\t" . 'index    index.php index.html index.htm;' . "\n";
    if (!preg_match("/^##NO_TRY_FILES$/m", $domain['specialsettings']))
    {
        $webroot_text .= "\t\t" . 'try_files $uri $uri/ @rewrites;' . "\n";
    } else {
        // NO_TRY_FILES statement found, don't put try_files into config
    }
} else {
    $webroot_text .= "\t" . 'index    index.html index.htm;' . "\n";
}

If I now put the statement "##NO_TRY_FILES" on a line by itself into the vhost special settings, no "try_files" will be generated in "location /".

I also require this Feature.

Most websites including WordPress require a config as simple as 

location / {
     try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args ;
}

 

But this conflicts with what's Provided by Froxlor and NGINX would give error unable to start due to multiple  Location/      directives.
Once I digged into Froxlor, commented it out and mine worked But that equally affected my Froxlor installation forcing me to revert it back.

Please it's a much needed feature.
Thanks for the Good Work

Don't know what you mean. Just installed a test wordpress on a server running nginx....no problem...again, like in other threads: READ CAREFULLY:

This doesn't mean wordpress itself does not work...
